Verizon's direct postpaid new unlimited high speed data (and talk and text) plan for multiple lines costs less than Cricket and almost any other provider (Big 4 carriers, MVNO, prepaid or postpaid) currently. Verizon's cost for unlimited service for multiple lines is:
per month for unlimited data
per line access fee for up to 10 smartphones
Auto Pay & paper-free billing discount
So five lines would work out to costing $40 per line. 10 lines would work out to $30 per line. For an unlimited LTE service plan (with possible deprioritization after 22 GB [per line], in line with other carrier's policies.)
I'm not aware of any lower costing plans elsewhere. And this would be on the Verizon network, billed directly by Verizon and customer service from Verizon.
What am I missing?
